In the mechanical keyboard group, there are a handful of keyboards that are revered by the group in general. Some of individuals keyboards involve the Satisfied Hacking Keyboard (HHKB) and the Topre REALFORCE keyboards, each of which originate from Japan and can be a bit tough trying to supply it in the US.
The great news is that in an announcement by Fujitsu, the enterprise has introduced that they will be bringing each HHKB and REALFORCE keyboards formally to the US. According to Yasunari Shimizu, President and CEO, Fujitsu Computer Goods of America, “There’s decades of history at the rear of these keyboards.”
“The HHKB is an iconic piece of components that influenced a movement, redefining what a experienced keyboard is and how it need to appear, really feel and purpose, right down to the structure and shape of the keys. Today’s versions harken back to the vintage 1990s design, symbolizing a normal evolution from the original structure.”
What helps make these keyboards so revered is owing to their use of Topre’s “switches”, which technically aren’t switches in the mechanical keyboard feeling. The use of Topre’s system combines the really feel/seem of a membrane keyboard (minus the mushiness) collectively with the tactility one particular may possibly count on from a mechanical keyboard.
That currently being said, neither the HHKB or the REALFORCE keyboards will occur affordable. Fujitsu has introduced that the HHKB Expert two will be priced at $241 when the HHKB Expert Type-S will retail for $322. The REALFORCE R2 will be priced at $258, when the REALFORCE R2 PFU Limited Edition is priced at $348.00. Far more info about the keyboards can be observed on its site.
